The Dean of Lichfield has said he was "glad and proud to be part of the same human race" as fundraiser Stephen Sutton as he paid a special tribute to the teenager at his private memorial service.
"It would be usual now, if this was a church service, to say 'rest in peace' but I can't imagine Stephen doing that," the Dean said as he concluded the service.
"He'd say 'Live it up', so - one more time - let's give him a thumbs up."
More than 10,000 people joined Stephen Sutton's family and friends in paying an emotional farewell to the inspirational teen cancer victim.
We were inundated with responses after asking our Facebook readers to post 'thumbs up' pictures in tribute to Stephen Sutton.
Mourners turned out to celebrate the life of teenage cancer victim Stephen Sutton as the fund he launched topped £4 million.
